Matter 1.2 update brings the standard to fridges, ACs, and your robo-vacuum

It’s been about a year since Matter hit the smart home scene. As we inch towards its first anniversary, the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA), the organization behind the standard, has launched version 1.2 introducing support for nine new device types and other improvements.

Right now, the CSA is focusing on integrating household appliances including, but not limited to refrigerators, air conditioners, dishwashers, smoke alarms, plus robotic vacuums. The update would allow users to control key functions like the remote start on dishwashers or the ability to monitor the temperature of a wine fridge. What’s more, the added air quality sensor support lets the device “capture and report” any toxic gasses in the vicinity such as carbon dioxide. The full list of supporting hardware can be found on the CSA’s website.

Pending implementation
